Synopsis

The Death of Corinne by R. T. Raichev

When death threats arrive in the post, Corinne takes refuge at Chalfont Park, country estate of her godmother Lady Grylls. Other house guests include Antonia Darcy and her husband Major Payne, Corinne's dominating agent Maitre Maginot, a private detective called Jonson, and Lady Grylls' nephew, Peverel de Broke...But why has millionairess socialite Eleanor Merchant travelled from the US with the sole intention of meeting Corinne? Could it be because she believes it was Corinne's haunting voice that drove her son to suicide? Praise for R. T. Raichev 'A whodunit that has more twists than a snake in a basket.' Robert Barnard The intricate and inventive mystery is embellished by witty dialogue and a cast of gloriously eccentric characters.' Francis Wyndham 'Agatha Christie fans will find much to like in this traditional whodunit.' Publishers Weekly 'Fascinating and surreal.' Lady Antonia Fraser 'All so ingenious.' Emma Tennant 'Fans of cosies will love the light touch.' Kirkus Reviews 'This will be pleasing to more than traditionalists, because it adds a P. D. Jamesian subtlety to the comfortable Christie formula.' Booklist
